When it comes to eating disorders, people think extremes: anorexia nervosa and compulsive, uncontrolled overeating. The general reaction to any person, male or female, who has an eating problem from those who don’t can be a frustrating inability to understand why it’s so difficult to gain control over one’s actions.

But in reality, getting control means altering and correcting a person’s mental state over the physical state. And it’s not an easy fix. The major eating disorders today are classified as mental disorders.
